My Travel Specialties

Off The Beaten Path

Some of my favorite destinations are cold weather locations. These trips provide exceptional scenery far beyond what a picture can show. The best example of this is Lake Louise located in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. If you are looking for breathtaking scenery, look no further than...

Italy: A Custom Tour

I’m a firm believer that anyone can experience the wonders of Europe. With a custom guided vacation, you’ll never have to miss out on fun for the whole family. 

Just this past month, I planned a guided tour of Italy for a family of nine. This included tours of the Tuscany countryside as well...

Italian Countryside

Escorted Through Ireland

My favorite vacations to plan are those that take clients off the beaten path. This is especially true for those wishing to have a one of a kind experience in Europe.

Just this summer I organized a unique tour of Ireland; an Irish pub tour. This tour was guided by CIE and showcased all the...

Adventures Down Under
Debi is always friendly and upbeat. Based on her experience, no matter my destination, she knows someone who has been there and will gladly find out more information to help make each and every vacation "a once in a lifetime journey"! On a recent trip to Australia, I decided to climb the Sydney Harbor Bridge, based in-part on Debi's advice. It was spectacular and just one of many highlights.
Debi knows my interests and has sent me invitations to travel presentations at the agency, including river cruising and Cuba. I am most appreciative of these chances to learn of new adventures. A river cruise is planned for late 2016 and Cuba is on my bucket list.

Our Childhood Dream Trip
Debi has our travel plans all organized and ready to go for us. From trips to Europe to visiting the Mouse in Florida, our trips have been planned with us in mind. We have NEVER had a bad experience using Debi's expertise in travel.

My childhood friend Linda and I have LOVED the Beatles since children. So we decided to save and go to Great Britain for 15 days. It was just wonderful! No rain, people were fantastic and the breathtaking scenery was amazing.

We particularly loved Scotland and the highlands. But never fear, we did see Liverpool, Penny Lane and the Cavern to make our childhood dreams come true to see something of our beloved Beatles!

Debi has sent me to Ireland, Italy, Great Britain and Florida! We cant wait to plan our next adventure with her!
